Too much spam

I have recently been inundated with spam comments from anonymous writers so I've changed my settings so that you have to be a registered user.  I'm not honestly sure what that means. I hope it doesn't keep out the real commenters from leaving comments.  

It will eliminate the anonymous comments, though. I'm sorry if this is a problem for anyone.  I just wanted to try to see if this will eliminate the spam.

I have some fabulous pictures to share of the Bouquets to Arts at the DeYoung Museum from last week that I will post later today.

Hope you are all having a great week.

Love to you all,

Nana Day again!!

The weather in California never ceases to amaze me. I had Ryan and Emma today and was able to bring them to my house to stay overnight. We had to go to the park and I thought Emma might be able to sit in the swing even though she's not sitting up yet. Here the two of them are having a great time at the park in the California sunshine!!

Another beautiful tree

This is another of my favorite trees in front of our house! Can you see the little pink buds? My tulips are blooming as well but not worthy of a picture!!
Have a great Monday!
Love to you all

I am "label challenged"!! and a GIVEAWAY!!

I think labels are a great idea for the back of a quilt.  I've known some quilters who do the most amazing labels.  Me?  I do the most basic thing because I struggle with how to do it.

So, here's a challenge for you:
Send me pictures of labels you like, whether you made them or not.  I'll try to post pictures of them this week.
I'll pick a winner or two and send you out a FQ or two!! Let's do this by Thursday, okay??

I'm looking for some great ideas and suggestions.

Hope you all have a great week.
Love to you all,

I love spring

I'm lucky enough to live in California where we have been enjoying 70* days, allowing me to hang my sheets on the line to dry!
We have a tree that is just blooming which I absolutely love!!

And the winner is....


You are the winner of my magazine 100 Quilt Blocks!

Please send me your snail mail address so I can mail it off to you on Monday.

I'm heading up to see the darling kiddies today since tomorrow is Nana Day. I am very excited!!

Hope everyone is having a great week. I've been sewing a little project that Lori and I are cooking up, but not talking about yet... Stay tuned!!!

Love to you all,

A little bragging time for Nana

If it's Friday, it is Nana Day! I was feeding Emma this morning and thought she looked adorable. Ryan and I have been going to the same breakfast place in SF for a long time, every week. This is what makes life so wonderful! I am blessed!!

I know it's been too long since I've posted and I'm sorry. I've done a lot of babysitting and then my mom got sick -- I am hoping to be more diligent about my blog posts.

I've been wanting to giveaway something.  I was a pattern tester for Quiltmaker last year.  I also made a quilt for them, although I can't say I'm overly excited about it.  Anyway it was published in their last issue of 100 Blocks.  But, what am I giving away?

Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, Vol 6:

I think they've just come out with a new issue so maybe this won't be very desirable.  But if you're interested in winning, please send me a comment. Be sure to include your email address, please.  I will draw a winner on Monday!

Hope everyone is doing well and enduring the last of winter!

Love to you all,
